COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Se-cal-le, Latin for rye, is a German style double bock brewed with this all too underappreciate grain, then lagered in High West Rye Whiskey barrels for 6 months. This unique brew, developed by Red Rock head brewer Kevin Templin and High West distiller Brendan Coyle is the first collaboration between the two since working together at Red Rock in 2006. Double bocks are a stronger version of traditional bock that was first brewed in Munich by the Paulaner monks, an order founded by St. Francis of Paula. Historically, doppelbock was high in alcohol and sweet, thus serving as "liquid bread" for the monks during times of fasting, when solid food was not permitted. The aroma is intensely malty with some toasty notes, and the flavour is very rich with noticeable alcoholic strength and very little hops. Finishing in Rye Whiskey barrels leads to a slight spiciness with hints of clove and dry oak. 8.5% alcohol by volume Please break bread responsibly

Bottle… Clear, dark copper lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent, thin, swirling retention. The aroma offers loads of caramel and rye whiskey with an afterthought of charred oak. Medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Caramel and rye whiskey form the flavor without being the least bit hot or boozy. Malty, thin finish with a gentle rye whiskey sendoff. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Pours a dark ruby color with a moderate two fingers of off-white head. The nose has a dry roasted malt aroma along with a light rye spiciness. It’s rounded out with a mild caramel malt and vanilla aroma. The taste starts with Caramel malts and toffee. Chocolate covered raisins come next come next with a dry rye spiciness. Hints of vanilla and whiskey come next in the end, as well as a subdued hop bitterness that balances the malty sweetness in the finish. The body is full and the whiskey notes become a bit more pronounced as it warms. The 8.5% abv is well hidden but sneaks up you quickly. This one damn fine lager. It has an outstanding aroma with a great taste and smoothness. It is a good traditional representation of the Bavarian style with a nice blend of rye malt - that is there, but not overly done - Traditional, yet unique. Highly recommended!

Tasted from a bottle at High West Distillery. Thin head, strong caramel flavored. Very smooth texture. No overpowering flavors, but good complexity and extremely well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Thick bourbon and malt aroma. This was a terrific brew. Nice flavors rich and thick and a terrific finish. There is a lingering barrel taste this was perfect with pasta.

Bottle from Sledutah - Secret Santa 2011. Pours clear medium brown color with tan head. Aromas of caramel, rye, bread and a hint of whisky. Sweet, malty and doughy flavor. Spiciness from the rye is evident. Chewy body with soft carbonation. I really enjoy rye beers and this is no exception. Thanks Craig!

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 30, 2011
bottle purchased from the location on 200 west - Pours a clear, deep ruby red color with minimal off white head that dissapears fairly quickly. Aroma has notes of whiskey, spicey winter rye, treacle, raisens, medium toasted dry oak, faint caramel, and the faintest note of star anise. Flavor has a solid Munich-driven malt character, with prominent caramel notes and oak, hints of whiskey that are not overpowering, along with vanilla and a faint roastyness. Finish is a bit on the sweet side. I would agree with others that the palate seems a bit thin, especially for everything else this beer is bringing. This is probably because it is slightly undercarbonated IMO. I think some extra CO2 would liven this up just a bit. Still, this is a really nice beer - one of the better Utah beers I’ve ever had. Although I think it falls just short of spectacular, in a state where creative beers are in a bit of a short supply, this really delivers. I hope that this is the future of Utah beer.
